an excellent nurse thyself, Trim ; and what with thy care of him, and the old wanan's, and his boy's, and onine together, we might recruit him again at ence, and set him upon his legs.com
--In a fortnight or three weeks, added my uncle Toby, smiling, he might march.--He will never march, an't please your honour, in this world, said the Corposal. He will march, faid my uncle Toby, rising up from the fide of the bed, with one shoe off. ----An't please your honour, said the Corporal, he will never march, but to his grave.--He thall march, cried my uncle Toby, marching the foot which had a fhoe on, though without advancing an inch, he shall march to liis regiment ---He cannot stand it, -faid the Corporal.
He shall be fupported, faid my uncle Toby.--He'll drop at lalt, said the Corporal, and what will become of his boy !--He shall not drop, faid my uncle Toby, firmly.--A-well-o'day,--do what we can for him, said Trim, maintaining his point,--the poor soul will die, ---He shall not die, by H-1, cried my uncle Toby,
-The ACCUSING SPIRIT, which few up to Heaven's chancery with tle oath, bluind as he gave it in ;-and the RECORDING ANGEL, as he wrote it down, dropped a tear upon the word, and blotted it out for ever.
-My uncle Toby went to his bureal,-put his purse into his pocket, and having ordered the Corporal to go early in the morning for a physician,-he went to bed and fell asleep.
The fun looked bright the morning after to every eye in the village but Le Fever’s and his aflicted son's; the hand of death presled heavy upon his eye-lids,--and hardly could the wheel at the cifter turn round its circle, when my uncle Toby, who had got up an hour before his wonted time, entered the Lieutenant's room, and without preface or apology, fat himself down upon the chair by the bed-lide, and independently of all modes and customs, opened the curtain in the manner an old friend and brother officer would have done it, and asked him how he did,--how he had rested in the night, what was his complaint, where was his pain, and what he could do to help him ?-and without giving him time to answer any one of the inquiries, went on
and told him of the little pkn which he had been concerting with the Corporal the night before for him.---
-You shall go home directly, Le Fever, said my uncle Toby, to my house, and we'll send for a doctor to see what's the matter, and we'll have an apothecary, and the Corporal shall be your nurse,-and I'll be your servant, Le Fever.
There was a frankness in my uncle Toby,--not the ef24 of familiarity, but the cause of it, --which let you at once into his soul, and showed you the goodness of his nature ;--to this, there was fomething in his looks, and voice, and manner, fuperadded, which eternally beckoned to the unfortunate to come and take shelter underhim; sothat before my uncle Toby had half finished the kind offers he was making to the father, had the son insensibly pressed up close to his knces, and had taken hold of the breast of his, coat, and was pulling it towards him.-The blood and spirits of Le Fever, which were waxing cold and now within him, and were retreating to their last citadel, the heart, --rallied back, the film forfook his eyes for a moment,-- he looked up wishfully in my uncle Toby's face,then cast a look upon his boy.-
Nature instantly ebb'd again, the film returned to its place,--the pulse fluttered=stopp’d, -went onthrobb’d-stopp'd again,w-moved topp’d, --hall I go en No.
I. The Shepherd and tbe Philofopher.
EMOTE from cities, liv'd a swain,
Unvex'd with all the cares of gain.
A deep philosopher (whose rules
The shepherd modestly reply'd
The daily labours of the bee
his faithful way ;
From Nature, too, I take my rule
Nor would I with felonious flight,
Thy fame is just, the fage replies :
And those, without our schools, suffice

Still on thy banks, fo gaily green,
